Chelsea considering move for RB Leipzig centre-back Dayot Upamecano

Chelsea are mulling over a summer move for RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano, according to The Daily Mirror.

The Blues are targeting the 21-year-old defender as part of a defensive overhaul in the summer.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has made the Frenchman his number one target in the summer transfer window.

Lampard has identified the youngster as the perfect centre-back partner for Antonio Rudiger.

Upamecano could leave the Bundesliga outfit this summer with less than 18 months remaining on his contract.

Chelsea could face fierce competition from Arsenal for Upamecano’s signature at the end of the season.

Upamecano racked up 26 appearances in all competitions for RB Leipzig this term.
